It looks like the client is receiving the first message of 4-way
handshake and wpa_supplicant log indicates that it is sending out
message 2/4. However, this message does not show up in hostapd debug

Based on this information, it's difficult to say why the message 2/4 is
not received correctly. It could be either because of the client not
actually sending it or because of the AP failing to receive it. If you
have possibility of using a wireless sniffer, it would be interesting to
see a capture log showing the frames sent between the AP and client in
this case.
